absence of light
“A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.” — Jean Genet
38w x 38h x 3.75d ground shungite stone, charcoal, plaster, sand, concrete, ground black onyx, oil housed in a handmade shou sugi ban frame (burnt to a dark char)
"absence of light" was infused with ground shungite stone throughout the concrete layers. "the miracle stone of the 21st century" shungite is now the go-to stone for electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, purification and detoxification of the body, as well as general healing and emotional well being. shungite has been around for an estimate two billion years and is composed mostly of pure carbon. shungite is also the only known natural mineral to contain fullerenes, which are specific molecular formations of carbon that act as powerful, long-lasting antioxidants.
The hanging gear installed to each piece differs by weight, size, and frame type. We install the best quality gear for each work, and quality check by installing the art on our studio walls.
If the painting you are purchasing is going to be hung on a surface that needs a particular type of gear, please reach out so we can make that happen for you.
Our shipping rates are pre-set and determined by size & weight.

We ship every painting ground unless upgraded to 3-day air - UPS ground shipping typically takes 3-7 business days.
The paintings in this collection are "ready to ship" meaning once we receive your order, we will start our secure packing process.

Our frames are uniquely crafted to complement and complete each individual piece, tying the entire vision together. Some works have pre-planned frames that we use as a focal point, and inspiration.
We have worked with clients who love a piece but need a frame with a different stain. Please reach out if the frame does not work with the space you are planning to fill, we are more than happy to work together to ensure the best fit possible. May it be a new frame, or change of stain.
